Due to the BS6 emission norms, Mahindra has officially discontinued 4 cars in India. Tap to see the entire list.
The stricter BS6 emission norms have commenced from 1st April. Due to the nationwide lockdown, the dealerships were closed and that’s why there’s an extension for sale of BS4 vehicles. Due to the norms, a lot of cars have been discontinued. Some were selling in great numbers while some were not and their respective manufacturers its better to discontinue them.
In case of Mahindra, it has officially discontinued 4 cars in India. All of them were not making any sales for the past many years. Although, there are other 2 Mahindra cars that have not received the BS6 update. But they will be updated shortly, once the production and dealerships are back to normal.
Mahindra Verito, Verito Vibe, Xylo and NuvoSport are the cars that have been discontinued. These four cars were one of the earliest ones in their segment. Among them, Xylo was still a decent performing car which was priced in close competition with the Maruti Ertiga. However, Verito, Verito Vibe and NuvoSport never made it big.
Mahindra Verito was nearly 4.2 metres long and a lot cheaper than its current rivals. Priced under Rs 9 Lakhs for the top-end variant it did a short stint in the commercial car market. On the other hand, Verito Vibe was one the earliest sub-4-metre sedans in India. Both came with the same 1.5 Litre diesel engine that was good for 65 PS and 160 Nm of torque.
NuvoSport was one of the first sub-4-metre compact SUVs that we had in India. Packed with many premium features, a 1.5 Litre diesel engine and the option of an AMT gearbox made it a good package. However, its design did not go well with the buyers and rather looked a bit ugly. It never failed to get decent sales numbers in its stint of just 4 years.
Lastly, we have the Xylo which was comparatively popular. Priced to a maximum of Rs 12 Lakhs, it was a gigantic SUV. Xylo is as long as MG Hector, Tata Harrier and Mahindra XUV500. However, due to increase in competition, the Xylo was slowly put in the backseat and lost all its popularity.
